is much easier to rebuild (schools that are burned to the ground than to rebuld a RACE

inevitably and positively^to the death of the ^VHITE RACE, Egypt and India v/ere once pure

?*xke no mistake about it. The JEV/ influence has infiltrated^ into the inati^:^u,tions of 
Church and State and into the thinking of our church and political lead^s. The Jew 
that Christianity is the religion of the white race and that the white; mdn> is its cham:- 
pion and defender. He kno^vs ,that if he can destroy the white race with, the dynamite ir 
the blood of the negro he will have chlorophoromed the sole protector of Christianity 
and Christ's tender and beautiful religion. will , at lorigj last, be v^iped from the fa- 
of the earth. This has been the JEV/ PLOT for two thousands years. AVfAKE FRC^5 SLUMBER

H ' ^ o. To preserve States* Rights. 

The greatest' insult ever| slammed into the\faces of the self-respecting, decent and ra- 
cially proud white peqple* in all America was publicized today in the Chicago newspapers. 
It is INFAMOUS I No eccleaastical Act or utterance running back through the annals of the 
DARK AGES can possibly compare with your BIOLOGICALLY IGNORANT DECREE (as the Press puts 
it, )that YffllTB dignity, decency, social edicts ,^ customs, chiii-ches, schools, hospitals and 
social institutions, liUSI , under your personal arbitrary EDICT, embrace the poisonous and 
cancerous^ EVIL of intimate and total integration with an alien and different SPECIES of 
the HOMO SAPIEN gro"up oflVaces. ... 

My earnest prsyer to Godjis that.,the intelligent Priesthood of your Diocese v/ill give 
^their OBEDIENCE to the NATURiL' LulWS of the Creator and lookVupon you v/ith suspicion and 
distrust as you swing yoir TORQUEM/iDA CLUB of brutality, with insane viciousness, upon 
.9Hr^n9bM. white rctces^j^oyoubt -you--hQld-^to-the -9 onvicti on- thit^thQ-ancdont-diaci^pl^ifie^of^^ 
Catholic Church which binds members of the 'Priesthood to abject obedience to their sup- 
eriors, whether fanatical or insane, v/ill hold, in this racially criminal instance*, aS' 
it has, back to and beyond the I'Stli century/. It is my fervent hope that .the fine,* in- 
telligent, rational menwho direct the affairs of our parishes, will recognize you as a 
dangerous DICT/lTOR- and y7,ill not comply vdth your mongrelization madness. These men, as 
•^ persoanlly know many of them, ^ are following in the footsteps, teachings and principles 
of Jesus Christ, who said- " a\TB the EVIL 'and/ LOVE the GOOD ". If there is anything 
more CERTAIN/in life, 'it is~rthat-— •*" THE EVIL OF MONGRELIZATION that is growing up in 
our church and school andi political systems-' — --is an EVIL ^land it should be resisted 
by every normal v;hite person with 'their v/hole strength, becatise NOT TO DO SO means "RACE 
SUICIDE" and " THE PASSING OP THE WHITE MAN' S'CULTURE AND' CIVILI^ATtOM " and if all this 
ever goes down the drain, CHRISTIANITY'S SOLE DEFENDER, the -TVHITE'Ri\CB, will vanish from 
the earth and the backbone of beautiful Christianity v/ill break under the hammer blows 
and *hatism' of Commuinsm and its bedfeloow, JUDalSM. 5 

A referendum ,' door to door, in all v/hite Chicago and its suburbs , would quickly inform 
you that 99^ of the people. Catholic and 'Protestant, wdnt no[part of your nefarious pro- 
gram, . Like the U. S. Supreme Court, you seem to represent the minute minority opinion 
and indulge in AUTHORIT/lRI/iN whims, v/hich are illegal and beyond the perimiter ^of Li\W 
and precedent. You conveniently forget that MR. CITIZEN is KING in this country and that 
Haritage, Tradition and Common Law are his guideposts. These are no longer the days 
when the KING WAS ALV/aYS RIGHT * AND COULD DO NO YffiONG. The most precious value in this 
life are PEOPLE and their virelfare and happiness. It is positively unmoral, criminal and 
traitorous to attempt to FORCE your tyoe pf INTEGRiiflON intojthe social life of white 
people. THIS IS N,OT A/RELIGIOUS ISSUE ! IT IS STRICTLY RACIiUi and the MITE RACE can 
solve it by follcwing their ovm natural instincts. FORCE ALofe can defile and destroy the 
Purity and Perpeturity of a race. PERPETRilTORS of racial destruction- deserve the GAS 
CH/J^BER , the firing wall or the Gibbets The advocasy of1 INTEGRATION is the most 

heinous CRIl^ OF GENOCIDE ! • ^

One of you desecrates Justice'and dispoils the V/hite :,!an*s Human Heritage I* 

One of you desecrates God's '!ost Perfect Law arid is ONE of Satan's horrible GOONS I 

Both of you vre^r RG32S to beguile , deceive and ndslead Innocent and Trusting People I 
The Guillobine would be too merciful for your RAO lAL, CRLTISI _ 

Gaze long at the photo of those Black and >*/hite children in ah INTEGRAT2Q Schoolroom 
and writhe as you behold the rotten fruit of Planned and Forced RacS "ixing ♦ 

£^?. ^s y^^ unforgiveable crime 1 NOWM If thero is any decency, intelligence, or white 
racial pride left in your bodies, I direct you to HSVSRSS your imperious Comissar rulings 
and dedicate your remaining couple of years of Life, to protecting and defending the noble 
and glorious Integrity of the Great Caucasian Race* 

I direct you further to RENOUNCS your devilish I'^astdrs. and the PRSSSORd GROUPS that warp 
your minds and make you prostitute the high office of your professions* Could it be that 
you, BOIH are evil, deliberate, .conscious, wreckers of the v/htte race ? Could it be that 
you took the SO/Piieces of Silver to betray and condemn an Innocent Race ? Judas had the 
decency to hang himself when remorse tortured his Traitor's brain* 

The crime of Integration destroyed the Caucasians in Brazili Ancient Sgj^t arid Inila. It 
U)ngreli3ed a large segment of the Caucasian Peoples in Greece , Rome and Spain, It made 
Empires decline. 

Because of the Perfidy of your actions against ny Caucasian race I positively hate you 
both and, this righteous hate is growing in rfhite America with atomic speed* !niis hate will 
preserve the v^hite race and will surely engulf and destroy defective v/hite men of your type* 

Could it be that negro blood" courses through- your hearts and ninds ? AreT you, PASSING for 
white as 10^000 others are doing in New York City alone ? If this is the case I can under- 
staiid your aotivation and 'insatiate yearning* for association with mongrels* America be- 
ings a Land of Freedom gives you the individual right to co-alesce with the descendents of 
.the black beasts of Africa. But, ymen you nisuse your civil and church autfarities to PORCS 
this cr'iminal act on frightened, defenseless , subjective white people , you will surely 
pay for your crime • Your obsessive ambition will surely o'erleap itself arid PALL ON YOU 1

The way of the Aotocrat can get rough under the fury of Public Opinion. You observe it 
happening all over ihe world today. If you are not too, egotistical you v/ill take Yrarrning. 

.For the sake of the decent men in ,your pDOfessions, and they are legion, I dare* to hope 
that you tv7o die-hards, already brainy/ashedm regimented and mentally mongrelized at 
least, will repent and turn your energies to sand-bagging arid holding back the flood- 
tide of Mongrelism- to SAVE A RACE. 

If St.. Paul , Emperor or Constaritine, Claire -Luce and Henry Ford, Jr. could be converted to 
Catholicism, there is a vestige of ^hope that the Light of Truth may penetrate your minds ' 
and put your loyalties where GOD intended they should be fixed FOREVER; 

On this date, April 16, 1962 the Airways reported that you'. Commissar Rummel, have, ex- 
oonmninicated three Catholics in your Diocese, namely Perez, Rioou and Mrs. Gaillot, and-^ 
this without direct communicatioh by letter, telephone or consultation. You- must certain- 
ly be in .need of psychiatric trea.tment, for no one in his right mind would indulge- in 
such foolish and irresponsible v/ilfulness» You have made yourself the laughing stock of 
America and the Pope should mizzle and silence you. You have injured the Catholic Re- 
ligion irreparably. Normal repercussions v/ill hit you and the Church you mis-serve, 
like ah avalanche. I, personally, hurl in your fanatical eemmissar face NOTICE of try 
SELF EX-COMiaJNICATION from the Catholic Religion - the Religion I was reared in, through 
grammar and High School exclusively. You have disgraced it .^as a leader of arrogance and 
irordiriate Pride ( One of the seven capital SINS .). 

Your 13th. century ideology is gratingly out, of place, in this 20th.. century, I. remind 
you that you are offering insult to intelligent people who have as, much claim on God, 
Faith, and Salvation as you have. You charge- us with DISOBEIDIENCE and inflict .upon lis 
the coward^ s act of excommunication because we will not DISOBEY GodVs Inviolate Law of 
Racial Fidelity , and submit OUR PRECIOUS CHILDREN, whom wo love more than anjrthirig else 
in this world, to INTERR/iCIAL association; ih tho^ schoolroom, v/hich pbsitively^, leads to. 
social mixing, miscegenation, interbreeding, and often inter-marriage ♦ V/e Defy you In- ^ 
qtiisitor Runrnel 1 Vfe nm know for a certainty that it is your inbent. to change our an- 
cient and desired Way of Segregated Lifel. You are not in the confused Negrophile 'Nor:bhI 
You are in the Proud S^outhland which has learned in 350 years that the ONLY WAY to pre- 
serve their WHIOE RACE is to keep the V/ALLS OF SEGREGATION " V E R B T E N *' to^tho 
Black descendents of the African Pre-Adamic and Soul -loss animal nogrpes. 

As for you Judge Wright, you are scorned by the Normal V/HITE PEOPLE all over America. 
Even the BL/LCK MUSLIMS despise you. REPENT and RELENT before it is^ too late. 

Yours for strict SEGREGATION

P. S. Before the wrath of the v/hite people falls on you. tv/o vain glorious men I sin-

^ this time you should knew that the negro situation is killing Chicago 1 • 

You are the gang who are solely responsible! By your cov/ardice and incompetency you have 
sent Chicago reeling down the hill of retrogression. You have driven over ONE MILLION of 
our test, self respecting white citizens to the suburbs. By aiding and abetting the POISON 
of INBEGR/kTION, whidi always destroys , you are solely rosponsiblo for the av/ful MS& Crime

acy and vicious criminality that presently exists. You have loused up the white public 
school system with negroes to the extent that venereal diseases are rampanjr. The Chicago 
Board of Health has the report for 1959-1960 showing the V, D. Rates in 75 coimminity 
school areas. The Low incidence rates are where the school population is vrhite. The high

RSSOLUTION-OUR PLEDGE 
OP YiiHITE LOYALTY 

We, the following MITE residents of Arcfhbishop Rummel's ^iocese do herfeby protest 
and stand opposed to his shocking and Irrosponsiblo Arbitrary Order to INTEGRATE NE- 
GROES with yJHITE children in our traditionally Segregated School System. 

The proposition of mixing BLlCKS v/ith WITE children in the intimate social setting 
of the school room is so repulsive to our historic way of life, and so objectionable 
and uncalled for that we shall not tolerate it under any chain of circumstances. 

Respect and appreciation for the kindly services of the Clergy is ONE THING, but BLIND 
ODDEIENCE to a criminal ani degrading ORDER to acfibpt INTEGRi'iTlOW because a senile old 
man of 85 thinks it' s FATHERLY, is a USURPATION of CIVIL UWS and a frontal attack on 
our basic FREEDOMS of INDIVIDUAL SOVERIGNTY and SELF-DETEhMINATION. We propose to fight 
this UGLY EVIL OF MONGRELIZATIOW growring up in the Catholic Church System. If our Hier- 
archy are willing to betray tha Roman Catholic Religion and its ancient teachings b y 
embracing Satanism, Communism, and treacherous Jewish Propaganda, then WE, the Rank and

erally, will form ranks and protect and perpetuate the Church we love and the WHITE CHIL-

toms and distinctive heritage. We support the ijJoals , principles and goals of our THREE

' ( Josepbt Beauharnaia, president of the White Circle League j, 
-X presided as chairman for the evening and opendd th.e.lB06ting at 8:50 
V P.M. with .the singing of tTAme'rica". At^ the conclusion of the singing 
he read a short prayer asking God»s guidance for the white Cireie

- the first ^^poak'ei*.. ) ^ •- . 

xi'^'t I4r, Di Christino who resides in the Airport Homes Project. 
" area gave It short talk in wliich he outlined the racial problem that 
took place' in that area in -the winter of 1946-47^ Ho stated that 
Elizabeth Woods of the Chic agp Housing Authority moved 18 Negro 
familicjs into subject project. The ^-Aiite veterans living in this 
project were iOO % iCor the colored to move out but that same would 
be accompliahdd by peaceful means and not to resort to violence. 
The City govorriment wap lax in their cooperation with the Jwhxte ^

out. - 

- " {Mr. Bob Graham spoke briefly in which he praised the hard 
1-:' wori< of Mr.^ Beauharnais. Mr. Graham stated that in the near future 
Kr. Beaidiarhaia wotdd enter the political field. 

Mr, Graham continued by illustrating how tjhe Hegrp has v 
gained advantages, recognition and favor in the oburts. of this city ^ 
Jrt cases involving white and colored persons, the-v/hitd sida^f the 
case always is persecuted and always ends up with diyerse^declsions. 
The Negro cause has advariood in all fields of daily life and has done 
80 because it organized all its people. -Their org^piizations work 
hard and function very efficiently for their cause. Therefore the 

^whites must organize for their own prestige.* Up till now the white 
people have hadno^prganizatioh that would represent their problems 

" ia these raci&l issues. ^ -

,, Kr. BeaiUiarrtale then related an incident in which ho 
illustrated hovr the city government functions in favor of the /Kegro 
over whites. Ho at&ted, *»! submitted an application to the^Boltifd ®-^ 
Education for pomiSton to use the assembly hall at the Hiroch.Hi'gh 
School where this raeeting would have been hold. X waited eighti days 
and.-received no reply therefore I took it upon myself to makJo o>. perr 
sortfel visit to the' offices of the School Board. When I got there* 1\ ^ 
got .evasive anav/ers and was sent from one place to another with the \ f 
story that my application could not be found. . I filially gainea :ien- \ 
trance iivto the Superintendant»s office and spoke with a? Mr. Hunt. \ 
Hr. Hu^t admitted that the application was in his possession biil^ that \, 
the request would be denied- with no reasons given for sane. Ithen v 
telephoned a Hr. t?rainor (phonetic) who is president of the Schdol ; 
Board of iJiroctors and also an executive of Swift h Compan/. Ilr. \ 
Trainor was vexy <ivirt and discourteous and stated that he did not ^ 
oare to diccusel the matter. X intend to make an issue of tKi^ and 
take this case to court and prove to the public how the whites are 
idiscriminated against." ' ] > ] 

"I know that Negro organizations are given whol^eiarfced 
perolssion in the use of public facilities to conduct theur/me^tings. 
Even the press works against the white race, they are rcliiot<ant;. to; 
give publicity to the VJhite Circle I.eague and white issuest., .1 nave { 
v/rittpa letters to all Chicago papers with the exceptions of the f 
Chic asp Tribune, asking why the word *IJegro» is deleted w^ien Hogroes 
are involved in crimes. I received no answer from any of those pap^s. , 
The White Circle League has gone on record in praise of the Tribune \ 
for their dpurageous stand in publishing news as it happens. They •, 
print the word »Nogro« in cases involving sano^ they call a spade a ' 
8pad^,8aid 2^. fieauharhais. , « 

Mr, Beauhamais continued, « I attended a meeting at the \ . 

Wendell Phillips High School. This meeting was sponsored by the Mat- \ 
ional Association for the Advancement of Colored People. They had 

no difficulty in acquiring this ha3Ll for their meeting.** \ 



He then said, "I recently attended a Progressive Party 
rally at the Coliseum where about 30^ of the audience was colored. 
The -rest of the audiehoe were of the typical small beady eyed, the 
homed x^immed glasses type of Jewish Communist. X do not hold ill 
feeling toward the Jewish populace as a whole but only to the type 
I have just mentioned." At this point Mr. Beauhamais read parts 
of a spoech that had been made by Aaron Bindman {Communist} at this 
meeting in the Coliseum. He mimicked Hr. Bindman* s gestures and 
spoke in a high pit cb*^]: pleading voice and critised his remarks 
against the Chic^p^TT lioo. Ho stated, "llr. Aaron Bindman should 
get down oh Jjit-i^d § Vd thank his Ood for the protection he was 
«jKftsd£i>«^ w^^ pad ho hot received this kind of protection , 

living today." 'S .

RE: WHITE CIRCLE LEAGUE OP AMERICA 
INTERNAL SECURITY ^ li ' 



Chicago, 111. 
Jan. 10, 195Q 



At 8:25 p.m. this date MiSi[ 



^YEntworth 6-1706) telephonically advised that 



hatr 



\ C hicago (phone 
llnternational 



\ 



Y/holesale and Retail Foods, 315 V/. 63rd St., Onicago. 

Conplainant said that within the past three weeks she had been contacted on 
tv;o occasions by two men, unknown to her, Vi-ho asked her to join the Yfhite Circle 
League of America. These men allegedly told her that it 7/ould cost her $50.00 
a month to be a member and that she would have to pledge herself not to sell food- 
stuffs to negroes. Complainant said that she told both of these men that she ^6 
would not join such ah un*American organization. Complainant described one of J^^c 
these unknown men as 35 yrs. old, 5*8", and very shabbily dressed. The other man 
was 28-30 yrs. old, 5 '5", wore bro^vn overcoat and spoke v/ith a southern accent. 

Complainant further advised that about 2:30 a.m. this date two hooded men 
and a m asked woman > v/ho wore a napkin over her face entered the complainant *s 
home at I \. Chicago and beat her continually from 2:30 a.m. 

until 1x00 a.m. During the alleged beating the complainant stated that the men 
held guns at her head. The complainant said, that the .masked v/oman told her that 
the Vfhite Circle League of, America was going to run the negroes out of Chicago 
and that since the complainant was a friend of the negroes she would have to suffer 
the consequences. Complainant advised that she could not accurately describe 
the men who beat her because they wore hoods, but she estimated one to be 5*10*^ 
and the other to be 5*2". The woman who v/as masked was described by the com- 
plainant as 35 yrs. old, S'l", 140-50 lbs., dirty-blond hair, and wore velvet 
hat and mink coat. 

Complainant said that at her written request, HOHN C. PRENDERGAST, Chicago 
Police Conmiissioner, assigned two uniformed Chicago Officers t o her place of 
business to protect her from violence, but that their presence l I only 

scared customers away and that non-uniformed officers should have been assigned 
to protect her. Complainant alleges that the Chicago Police are tapping her 
telephone wire and "v/orking against me". Complainant further alleges that the * 
Ylhite Circle League is paying the Chicago Police, v/ho sanction everything the 
Yfhite Cir&le League does. 

It should be noted that the complainant was incoherent throughout the con- 
versation with the v/riter and on one occasioii geew hysterical and sounded as if 
■ she were cr;Jring or sobbing. 

Indice^^ reflect that file #105-291 is the subject file for the y/hite Circle 
League of America. The following references are newspaper articles pertaining 
to the White Circle League: 100-18956-246,269. 

It is recommended that this .memo be placed in the 1 0.5.^2 Ol^file for ^ 
information purposes. l^^^TT^ ^

II, BACKGROUND OF JOSEPH BEAUHARNAIS 

Address of Headquarters 

Chicago T-2 advised the headquarters pf the WCLA is located, at Suite 808, 
.'82 Vfest Washington Street, Chicago, Illinois. 

Chicago T-land^ Chicago T-2 advised that they were unable to furnish the 
names of any of f icers of the ivCLA. T-1, however, furnished the following^ 
infoiroation concerning BEAUHARNAIS: 

Chicago' T-i has been acquainted with BEAlHARNAIS^for the past two and a 
half years and belie veshim^ to be a psycho in cofiaectibh v/ith his hatred 
for the Negro race-; t-1 stated that BEAUHARNAIS is ah atheist, is 
apparently wealthy, and spends considerable money • BEAUHARNAIS, accord- ^ 
ing- to T-1, is approximately fifty-five years of age* 

Chicago T-2 stated that JOSEPH BEAUHARNAIS is f if ty-f ijve years; of age 
and Y^as bom and raised on the near south side of Chicago where he attended 
parochial grade and ^ high schools. He is married' and the father of one son, 
a Yforld War II veteran. In 1941 BEAUHARTvAIS became associated with the 
Berry 'Company in the fomation of a business knoivn by the trade name of 
"Beau Hamais," manufacturer;?- of leather specialties, located at, 316 South 
Vfabash Avenue, Chicago, Illinois, in May, *1943» The Berry Company was 
discontinued,, but BSAUHAmvAIS purchased all the assets and ^the business, 
was continued at 316 South ^/al^ash Avenue until April of 1949^ at which 
time BSAUHARi^'AIS moved to 8i2 North Yfells Street. It is e'stimated that 
his. business is v;orth i}30,000' at* the present time and annual sales are 
estimated at (^40,000.

According to^ T-2, BEAUHARNAIS ^vas self -employed from 1919 to 1941, engaging 
in sales promotional v/ork and advertising in theaters throughout the United 
States • 

III . STATED AIMS kW PURPOSES 

Chicago T-2 stated the 7/CLA is used as a front by Mr* BEAUKARI^^AIS in attempt- 
ing to organize one million white persons in Chicago to oppose "the national 
campaign, by President HARRY S. TRUiiAN on* his Civil Rights program to amalgamate 
the black and white races Avith the object of ftiongrelizing 'the white race," 

Chicago T-2 reported that^ BEAUHARKAIS said that he feels that segregation is 
the only ans\'fer to the racial problem. His fight is not against the colored 
people as a ^ace, but in opposition to the minority groups who would destroy 
our v/ay of life. BEAUHiiRNiilS lists the National Association for the Advance- 
ment of Colored People as bne such organization. 

In a questionnaire distributed by the V/CLA *the following Declaration of Aims 
and Purposes was set out: 

"We propose to keep white neighborhoods free from negroes. 

"We support the principles of States Rights as guaranteed in 
the U. ^. Constitution of America, 

"We maintain the white man's inalienable right to exclude the ' 
negro from his social life • . ♦ his neighborhood . . . his 
churches . . . hotels . . . eating establishments, and other 
privately ov/ned* public places established and maintained ex- 
clusively for white patronage and to sponsor the adoption^ of 
laws to clarify and attain these objectives, 

"\fe demand that the negro keep his social distance and stay 
on his side of the fence because years of interracial ex- 
perimentation to promote the general welfare and insure 
domestic tranquility has proven a colossal Tailvtro and* is 
a serious violation of natural law. 

"We are opposed to the Chicago Board of Education assigning 
negro school teachers to teach in white classrooms JJ

The piper has grown wary in 
his ^roubles, and he is aggrieved 
at ^the 'nonbelf&vcrs. ^ 

Beauharnais reserves, a* special 
placVfor Dr.^Herold Hunt, super- 
intendent of schools, and Thomas 
Wright, head, of the Mayor's 
Commission* on Human Rela- 
tions. 

**Thcy*re part of this damna- 
ble ' rionsplracy to mohgrelize 
' the white race," Beauharnais 
'Says. 

In fact, he believes that, ob- 
servers under Wright were the 
ones who infiltrated White Chrcle 
meetings. 

ASKED FOB the date o| his 
next. meeting, Beauharnais said: 
"We're riot holding any Just 
now. There were too many spies." 

* * * 
DB. HUNT won his spurs with 

the White Circle League when 
Beauharnais was refused a meet- 
ings place in a city school. 

Despite a table-pouriding ses- 
sion with Hunt, Beauharnais lost 
the round. ^ ^ 

A new action that could cut' 

the "piper down, to a backyard 

, flutist is a threatened state suit 

to revoke the White Circle 

charter.' 

That"Inc." stands for the state 
charter issued iast Nov, 9 to the 
White Circle League as a not- 
for-profit organization. 

Penalties under the suit could 
run up* to a §25,000 fine,

THE PIPER plays a tune with 

this off-key melody; "We're not

Chicago, Illinoi^s, stating that he believes the charter of the "Vftiite

sounds like a repe'at performance of ADOLPK HITLER'S master race theory. 

On January 21, 1950, Y/IhTRED L., CHAPPSLL^ 22 vfest Erie, Chicago,

printed matter is full of incitement against, bur negro citizens*.

league= is to investigate realtors v/ho sell or rent property to Negroes, 
Jevfs, Cbmmnists or individuals who are ^non-Caucasian. The ^organization 
according to^RIGE, determined v/here the realtors lived, what kind of 
vrork they did, what organizations they belonged to, and it had a sor 
called "black list" which they used for terrorization. ' It was 
recommended that a special investigation be made by the Legal Dep^ft- 
raent of the Civil Rights Corlgress,^ v/hich consists of twenty-nine 
ikv/yers* PRICE "advised that a legal report would be ^drafted on the 
status of the \Vhite Circle^ League and a. delegation would be sent to 
present ihe investigative' report to Attorney General KG GRkTE for. 
action to suppress activity of th^ organization. He then proposed 
^ mass action protest to be »f ollowed v/ith petitions signed by individual 
t citizens against the new organization* " 

December 17,,^ 1949 T-2, a local agency that collects security 
information in the Chicago aroa, advised that a meeting of the WCLA 
was held on December 17, 1949 at ^ 6331 South University Avenue, Chicago, 
Illinois. This meeting was to sjbart at 7:30 p»m. but- did* not commence 
until^8:50 p.m. and there were approximately 175 persons present. 

'"JOSEPH JEAUHARNAIS^, jpresideht of the WCIA, presided as chairman for 
the. evening and opened the meeting.^at 8:50 p.m. with the singing of 
I'America." At the conclusion of^the singing he read a short prayer 
asking God's guidance for the WLA. 

.i(Mr. BOB GRAHAM spoke briefly in which he praised the., hard work of 
Mr., JBEAUHARNAISi^ ,Ifr.^GRMIA2.I stated that in -the near future Mr. 
BEAUHARNAIS would enter the' political field. 

It Mr. GRAHAM continued by illustrating how the Negro has gained 
advantages,, recognition and favor in the courts of this city. In 
cases involving white and colored persons, the white side of the 
case always is prosecuted and always ends up with 'adverse decisions. 
The Negro cause/ has advanced in .all fields .of daily life and has 
done^ so because .it organized all its peop3.e. Their organizations^ ; 
work hard and function very efficiently for their -cause. Therefore, 
the whites must .orgariize for their own prestige. Up till now the 
white people have had no- organization, that would^ represent their 
problems in these racial issues. 

"I^.. "33EAUHARNAIS clarified a statement made by Mr^ GRAHAM in regard 
to^ his political aims and stated that he does not intend to enter 

• the political" field ^ He added^, hov/ever, -"I^ intentions are to get

of v;hich is to obtain 2,000,000 signatures for presentation to the , 
Mayor, These petitions are for presefyation and protection of vAiite 
neighborhoods .against Negro infiltration. » 

January 23, 1950 Confidential Informant T-3, of knovm reliability, 
furnished a circular that'v/as distributed by the WCM. The circular 
is entitled "Vfliite Circle Tightens Belt for Action! 1,000 Volunteers 
Needed." This circular reflects that volunteers are needed on Saturday, 
January 7, i950' to collect two million signatures on petitions to 
present to llayor KENNELLY and the City of Chicago- and the Chicago City 
Council to demand passage of the lav; "to contain Negroes vriLthin 
jrestricted residential areas," Pertinent excerpts from the , circular are 
,quoted as follows: 

"ihny Business Men - Professional men - Real Estate firms and Bankers 
have been approached to contribute and help support the Vftiite Circle - 
unanimously - they all say its a most wonderXul cause and are 
personally for it 100^ - but~but~but— they cannot come out publio^lly 
for it until it goes through the fires and proves it has the tough 
fibre to rise above all opposition, Vfe shall not need them then! / 
All these men are we^k, vacillating, v/hite sissies — they are plain 
scared— they place selfish considerations to rnake a dollar above the 
great^ principle of white dignity and %*Lite self-preservation—they 
are small v/hite men cowering 'under intimidations^ from Press-Pulpit- 
Local Government and Organized JiLnority Groups — like all cowards 
"They die a thousand deaths—The Valiant Dies But Once," Vfe must show 
them the way. Vfe must be worthy to drav; the mantle of protection 
around our white women and children and protect them from the lust and 
attacks of criminal and moronic Negroes* 

'"The fate of the 7/hite Circle is in the palm of your hands - urge every 
v/ha^te person you knovrto join— too long have we been a vast, unorganized 
conglomeration of v/hite slumbei^ing fools. Memberships will make us

strength," 

January 25, 1950 Confidential Informant. T-2 advised that ROBERT 
' BURDETT, associated with the State of Illinois Attorney General's 
Office, was conducting an investigation to determine if the Illinois 
Chai^ter of the V/CLiv should be revoked.

Pressed for details, BEAUHARNAIS retreats to. safer ground. "Vfe^re 
not divulging that right now," he says airily. 

t» Still in the offing in BEAUHARNAIS' schemes are a monthly paper for 
which he has already taken subscriptions, a v/eekly radio program and 
"two million loyal members." 

»V/hen the leader '^ not engaged in his employment, he lives at 8533 
Dante Ave., but he guards his address jealously. "I've had some 
telephone threats, " he explains darkly. Tuesday the leader has a date 
vath Judge OSCAR CAPLAN in Jury Court at 26th St. and California " 
Ave. He must answer to a state charge based on the distribution of 
hate literature. A $200 fine is possible. 

" QBackti by a lawyer, MAXII£ELI&N, the leader ds prepared to shop around 
Until he finds the right judge. "I Wouldn't get a fair trial from 
CAPLAN," BEAUHARNAIS said with the meekness of a true, martyr. He 
asserted that the religion of Judge CAPLAN and the assistant staters 
attorney was not to his liking. 

" A bevy of reporters recently v^ere greeted at a "press conference" in

covenants which were held to be unlawful in the courts, that it is 
designed to maintain by terrorism the Negro Ghetto as a source of 
super-profits. 

"In the space of tv/o months, this organization has grov/n to the point 
where it, is a monstrous menace to the people of this city.

We Will Not Be Disuaded 

I will stake my future and my life that the MONGREUZ- 
ERS have no case against us. I assure you we shaU be 
exonerated in our Courts and that our orgaxmaUon will 
develop into one of the greatest forces for good m the entire 
country. If the negro can have his organizatiorus omd tte 
Communist can have his organization, we hold that the 
WHITE RACE has the same right to organize. 

I repeat that there is only one force that can slop the

oessfully keep our white neighborhoods freed from negroes and ultimately bring about 
total separation of the black and white races socially. ^ ^ 4.1,^ 

We call a spade a spade ^d all WHITE CIRCLE MEMBERS stand up to be counted on the 
racial issue. We say publicly to Government, to Press, to P^JP^* ^"^,^ of the'nonnal 
called inter-racial groups that our/positive, conviction is that ,99 9/1^ of the nprmai 

white people refuse to mix socially with, negroes and f ^ .<>^6«^"^S- ^*J^?f*' ^j/n^ces- 
us to do so will he resisted -with all pur will and endurance; vvith our lives l^neojs 
sary. The law of .human nature is on our side.--We believe ^hat.animals of a kind and 
pebple of a kind congregate together because they are governed "^s^^^^^J^jiy ^yj-J" 
mutable Natural Laws which emanate from the Creator to maintain the perpetuity and 
self-preservation of every species of life. , • .^, . ^. ^ -uaa.^ \.<r r^r^J 

The' stars' inthe heavenly firmament are held pennanently within fixed oj^J*^.g,f?^f

operate and function within the limitations of their fixed orbits, just so l«^g^s 
the natural harmony maintained. Were it otherv/ise there would be chaos, darkness,, 
confusion and terrible disorder in the Universe. ^..-i-^.,; ^,^ 

In the hmian social world of today we have o^^^os, disorder, and r^^^^

resist the invasion of the -negro into our white social orbit. This is normal and ^ 
natural and conforms vrith the Plan of the Creator. d t*.- 

V/hite Circle Valiants-STAND- FIRM against all attempts by Freaoher-, Press or Politi- 
cian to persuade you to submit to amalgamation with the:negro. ?here is only o^© 
thing wo?se than war and that is to set the white people, o? America submit .tof9rced

Coramenting on the Mayor's statement that he wouldn't do a 
thing until he talked with Egan and Alderman William Lan- 
caster (37), Chairman of the City -XJouncil Housing Committee, 
Rabbi Berraan sent this tela gram to Kennelly: 

"I am shocked by the rei^ort that you must await consultation 
with Aid. Egan before expressing your indignation and utter 
rejection of his sneak move in the City CovmQil. Any self- 
respecting person hits back v/hen struck belowr- the. belt. 

"You^mb/licly commSt ted yourself to finding vacant land sites 
for r>ublic housing. Sgan's mave was an underhanded effort 
to sabotage you. Yet here you are, because your betrayer 
found it inconvenient to ireet with you yesterday, EITHER 
YOU y/ANT' VACANT SITI£3 OR YOU DON'T, -IF YOU DO, YOJ MUST IM- 



" Delay is surrender, . Speak out now if you want to be con- 
sidered the Mayor ratheii than an alde'rmanic captive'.

Sirs : 

I am v/riting in regard to the increased activities of a 
Chicago group v/hich calls itself the White Circle League of 
America, Incorporated* It^^s mailing address is 82 West 
Washington street ; — Chicago 2, Illinois •^ It's telephone number 
is listed as FRANKLIN 2-8533 • 

You are doubtless familiar v/ith the baclcround of this group — 
headed by one Joseph Beauharnais* It is another of the. *nura&rous 
hate organizations v/hich flourished during; the late thirties arid 
forties -- advocating race supremacy* 

Currently, the group is circulating a scurrilous petition-— 
asking for one-million white persons to unite in a vast segregation 
campaign here in Chicago* The group is .actively soliciting 
members at one'doll-ar a head* 



The petition— addressed to ^ayor ^erinelly and the Chicago city 
council, claims communism is rife among colored persons ^-and , 
follo\ys this by declaring "v/e'are not against the Negro." ' 

Here are a few random quotes, from this peti^tion: "If the 
persuasion and the need to prevent the v/hite race from becoming 
mongrelized by^ the negro will .not unite us> then the aggressions* ♦♦. 
rapes, robberies,, lcnives>^ guhs^i and, marihuana of the negro, 
surely will*;" 

****"The first loyalty of every v/hite person is to his race* > - 
All the combined' pro-negro forces have hurled their ultimatum 
in:bo. the vf aces ,pf the >/hite people^*^. V/e accept the ir^ challenge. 
They^ cannot y/inJ: ***.,sThe hoiii? has struck fpr*^all normal v^hite 
people to stand, up and fight for our rights to life, liberty 
and the pursuit of happiness*^* 

(signed) Joseph Beauharnaisj 



The petition seeks volunteers (to come to headqua 
additional petiUons may be secxired* 

I hope your office will make every pff ort to inve 
group* ^.rt y^ S^y^^ I --^ ^

"Beauhamais 'blustered on the witness stand under 
cross examination 1^ Assistant State' s Attorney Albert

mob violence here, 

">V/hat chance would South Korea have today, » the hate-mongering sheet 
says, '.♦.•if help were -not being rushed there, 

"'We need your help just as badly to stem the invasion of a minority 
race upon our homelands,' it adds» 

"'We are willing to come out openly and fight, to die if necessary, 
for the preservation of the white race and its ideals, ' Beauhamais ■ 
declared."

meeting of the VJhite Circle League at the Eagle Hall, Informant also

mentioned meeting, but left before the meeting was over; According to 
the informant, several Coramvinist Party members were apprehensive of 
bodily harm if they stayed until the meeting adjourned.

an article captioned, "Mobs Attack Homes of 3 Negro Families in CHiicago 
Area". The article describes several racial distrubances that have 
taken place in Chicago where negro families have moved into white 
neighborhoods* Portions of the article regarding the \Ihxte Circle 
League are quoted as follows: "The Park Manor area, the scene of numerous 
racist outbreaks, is known to be the home of the \\Mte Circle League, 
a notorious Klan-like organization* Two leaders of this outfit, Martin 
Federsen and James T* Kyker, live on St». Lawrence Ave*, directly across 
the street from the Roscoe Johnson home* 

"The White Circle League leader, Joseph Beauharnais, -admitted in court 
recently that his organization was born during the attacks on the 
Johnsons' home last July* 

"However, Chicago police this week refused to take action against the 
\^ite Circle Leaguers in spite of the series of events leading to the 
mob attack of Wednesday night. District Police Capt* VJilliam Kells

MEMO, SAC 



The first, subject on the agenda x^as a report by the Chairinan 
ot the Social Coi^iittee concerning psreparations for the Chapter 
Picnic heing held on July 29 ©osrta " It"" was reflected that all 
arrangements had been made and that the raain problem v;ould be 
the getting out of people to the picnic and the selling of 
raffle tickets, 

ROY PLSASi\E3? then spoke on the subject of civil rights, stating 
that ther-e had boen'racial discrimination on two Kegro delegates ^ 
v&io had been housed by ALICE YONIK and DOEOTEI PLEASAFT in \ 

connection Vith their apoearanco at Chicago in the American 
Peace Crusade Exposition, June 29 to July 1, 1951 • PL^ASAUT 
reported that a crov/d of aj; least 350 people, v;hom ho described 
as all mobsters and members of the VJhite Circle League, who did . | 
not live in the community, had surrounded the hou^e and molesteji / 
the people. He claimed that the Chicago Police had watched the ' 
mobsters knock, out windows and had done nothing about their 
actions. He said that the Ghi6a^^'^o Police, instead of stopping 
the mobsters', visited the yofllK residence and iomanled that the 
Negro delegates leave the promises at- one. He stated that the 
delegates had left* the, premises through the rear but N5ospite 
their -leaving the promises the mob had committed acts of 
Irandalism to the premises,' 

PLEASANT repor.ted that his v;i.to had recently returned froiri the 
Hospital and due to the mob violence^had to be son t to the 
home of frie,nds' to live until the riot was'sto|)poc: a^id i/x 
order for her to recup^^rate from her high 13ood prossur^.c^ 

PLSASAl^T 15^.en reported on the race riot in 03ccro^ asserting 
that the only >^ay to ^p mob violence is to naye peace. He 
3.aid tha.t if peace is slg^ied in Korea it will bring about a 
depression and unomploymonfc which will force all people to 
live in harmony .^s they will all have td suffer alike. He 
said that bi^ business doQs not care for future planning in 
order to stabilise production and purchasing pov/er, ^ there- 
fore, the present inflation and lack of purchasing power will

create over-production v;hich in turn will cause unemployment 
and depression, 

A motion was made by V/ILMA GREBAN and seconded by HELEN EHRLICH 
that a letter be drafted to all law enforcement groups and to 
President TRUMAN demanding that this mob violence bo stopped 
and. that those responsible for the mob violence and bloodshed 
should be punished. 

A report was then given concerning the Peace Congress held 
June 29 to July 1, 19^1 by delegates MOLNAR, COUSINS, V/Ilim 
GREBAN and JOSEPH POSKONivA. All reported that the Peace 
Congress was very successfuly and that a lot of good resolutions 
came out of the Congress. They stated that the Congress had 
shoim a new spirit of the American people that ail is not as 
bad as the reac.tionaries paint it. The delegates reported 
that there were how more people for pfeacc than ever in the 
his,tory of the country. 

The meeting was concluded with an adoption of the delegates"

of the convention. He spoke about the United Nations during 
which he vigoriously attacked the U.N. and stated that, in 
his opinion, the U.N. is unconstitutional. XAVIER stated that 
he ha*d been discharged from the Army because he stood in 
front of the U,N. Building in New lork City, threw the U.N.

that he is now devoting his full time to the publishing of 
"Common Sense," which has "reached nationwide circulationc 
McGIKLEY described several attempts which have been made^ on

of an Overland. Missouri policeman and that they would be 
eligible for parole in five years. K/uvIILTON stated that the 
people of St. Louis were going to begin r,o do something about 
Negroes ejid that this v;as one &itutation that the people vjere 
going to stop. HAMLTON urged that all of the groups represent- 
ed at the convention unite in order that thsy might do some- 
thing a bout fighting the Negro situaf-ion all over the country. 

Anoiiier speaker was a Mr. LAMDIS from Dayton, Ohj.o, who 
spoke in favor of abolishing all taxes. He stated that he and 
a group of others had attempted to have an earnings tax out- 
lawed in Dayton because it had not been voted upon by the 
peop3.e. He stated, however, that it was later passed by a vor.c- 
of the r>eople of Daij-t-cn. LA^IDIS stated that he wrote one 
hundred" letters to people who would have to pay the earnings 
ta-^. buo who would not benefit from it since they resided out- 
side of Dayton. He stated that in these letters he asked these 
peopD.e to attend a meeting to discuss the situation but that

Mrs. DeHOSS, had called upon him for help.- Ho stated that 
Mrs. DeROSE had by mistake retained a Negro attorney to defend 
her in a case with the rent control office. He stated that this 
attorney and his associates gained control of Mrs. DeROSR'S 
property and employed a Negro couple- to pretend they were, 
going to move into the Apartment- house. By this means, the 
Negro attorney hoped to get §120,000 for the property which 
was valued at ([160,000. BEAUHARNAIS stated th?,t Mrs. DeROSE 
then employed a second attorney to sue the Negro attorney and 
that when this caSe came up in court Mrs. DeROSE was jailed for 
contempt of court. EEAUHARNAIS stated that he and the parents

behalf and that he v;as going to do all in his power to help 
Mrs. DeROSE. 

At the conclusion of his speech, BEAUHARNAIS stated that 
all of the speeches being made at the convention were being 
so^d recorded "because v;e may have to use it in court some- 
day." He added that the recording would be made available to 
the member organizations in order that they might be played at 
local meetings. 

According to the informant , the first speaker at the 
July 6, 1952 session was a Mr. LAI<iBERT from Chicago, Illinois 
who related, how the Woodlawn section of Chicago was being over- 
run With Negroes; H^ stated that he had owned a restaurant 
in this sectioi;i'and that the Negroes often left without paying 
for their meals. ■ Ke stated that on one occasion a Negro woman 
left without paying and in addition to this, she struck and 
cursed him, and the following day brought him into court and 
sued him for ^520, He stated that several days later a Negro 
woman left vathout paying but he made no effort to stop her 
because he said he would get no backing from the police. He 
stated that all of the VJcodlawn residents have had to stand 
by and watch their stores being broken into and robbed because 
the police- do nothing to help them. He stated that for this 
reason he and other Woodlawn residents were supporting the 
anti-Negro "Vftiite. Circle League" in Chicago. 

The next speaker was LSV/IS KLENKE of Edwardsville, Illinois, 
who is a member of the Board of Directors of the newspaper 
''The Farmers' Voice," published by the United Farmers of 
America, Incorporated. H© spoke against the use of artificial 
fertilizer and insect sprays and stated that his organization 
was against the use of medicines and the fluoridation of- water 
systems. He stated, that the people were being forced to use 
these artificial aids as part of a deep rooted plot to weaken 
them so that they could be easily overcome. 

The informant stated that at the last session of the 
convention many resolutions were introduced and adopted. It 
was stated that a copy of these would later be sent to all those 
delegates in attendance. In summary, these resolutions in- 
dicated that the • organization would be anti-Negro, anti-Jewish, 
anti-Farm Bureau, anti-tax system and against the present 
monetary system in this country. The informant advised that 
a discussion took place concerning the name to be adopted by tn^

organization, • After the introduction and discussion of 
several names, the name selected was "National- Association 
For The Advancement of V/hite People." However, the informant 
was later advised by JOHN V7. H/iMILTON that after the convention 
had ended the leaders of several .participating organizations 
met and decided that the name selected at the convention should 
be changed inasmuch as it might be confused with the National 
Association For Tiie Advancement of Colored People . H/UvIILTON 
stated that it was decided to change the name from "National 
Association For The Advancement of VJhite People" to "The 
Allied American Association." 

According to the informant, it was not made clear al: the 
convention whether the nev; organization would have^ a head- 
quarters which would direct its -activities or whether.it would 
be an^ organization in name only, with all activities carried 0^^ 
through the member organizations* It was stated, however, that 
the participating 'organizations would retain their present 
name and character but that their letterheads would be changed 
to show affiliation with the "National Association For The 
Advancement Of ^flhite People^" According to the informant, it 
appears that the participating organizations will all adopt 
the platform of the new organization. The, informant stated 
that most of the delegates present appeared to be friends of 
long standing and indicated that they were' in constant 
communication v/ith each _other. , ^ \ ^2 



that 

there/were delegates -from about thirty states present at the 
convention. However, the informant observed that there were 
never more than thirty-five people present at any one session 
of the convention. It was also stated during the convention 
th?^t there were to be approxin^tely fifty organizations joining 
together to form the -^^National Association For The Advancement 
Of VJhite People, ^^ but^ according to 'the informant, not all of these 
were represented at the convention^ 

Informant stated that JOSEPH BEAUHARNAIS indicated 'that 
the names of the participating organizations vjould be made 
available at a later date, at which time a list of the 
resolutions passed v/ould also be made available to those who 
had attended. 

Inasmuch as there is no organization known as the ' "Nation^'-

leader of the organization. He explains the

ni shed the v/riter by mail with a handwritten repprt on a: forum ^^d 
entitled, "Peoples" 'Mandate in- the 1952 Elections" sponsored 
by the "Illinois v\'orkQr'* and held at Curtis Hall, klO^ South 
Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois/ on September 26, 1952/ . 

SYLVIA */f60DS was Chairman^ of the meeting, she. in tro dude di, CARL 
HIR3CH as Editor of the "Daily Worker". HIRSCH stated that 
there was no difiference between the two parties, STEVENSON is 
almost the same as EISENHOWER and NIXON, but he represents ^the 
Democratic control that has held .this country in terror fors 
seviBn years., " 

HIRSCH said th^t in order to stop imperialism and to put an 
end to further plan^s. of the war makers, there must be an inde- 
pendent people's movement for ^peace. 

The next speaker wa3 SYLVIA WOODS who called upon the people 
to go to precinct by precinct in Chicago and poll -the people 
to see if they wanted a cease fire in Korea. WOODS also in- 
structed the people to conduct a large v/rite -in campaign in 
order to support the Progressive Party. WOODS advised the 
people to stand up and fight rather than to face ^ licking. 

The next speaker was introduced as "DAVID EKGLESTETN/ a member- 
of the Communist Party •" ENGLESTEIN stated,, "I am a member or 
the Communist Party, and I want to speak here of the major set 
backs of- the imperialist powers." The major imperialist powers^ 
have been dealt a blow with the' failure of the Honolulu Confer- 
ence. This failed because the South Pacific -countries refused 
to join, thus leaving Austrailia and New Zealand .the only ones 
to stand by the imperialistic powers* EWGLESTEm stated that 
there are 6? major peace movei:hents in the world today, and also 
there will be a world peace council set up- that will. Yne^t in

19^7 that she has knovm Mrs* W. E* JENKINS, aka Mrs^JESSIEJl, 
JEKKINS , for at least 15"yea!?§r^SS^'''s^^ that Mrs. JEl^IKINS 
is & pSouliar and very eccentric woman, who was formerly in 
the fur repair business in Golinnbus, Geo rgia ♦ Judge LAMAR ad- 
vised that in the fall of 19^6 Mrs* JENKINS took a notion that 
she vxanted to organize the Na t ioiia l_.EaJ; glck^enr v^Or p^aniza t i 
to fight Communism. In her efforts to organize this organiza- 
tion she solicited many prominent citizens in Coliombus, Georgia, 
as well as attorneys and merchants in the city. 

Judge LAl'IAR further stated that since she v/as known throughout 
Columbus, Georgia as a very eccentric and peculiar person she 
;«yas''put aside by the various persons whom she contacted, who 
gave various excuses in an effort to avoid hurting her feelings. 
The attorneys contacted by her refused* to furnish free legal 
service and declined to Join the organization. The merchants 
when contacted by Mrs. JENKINS gave her the excuse they had to 
remain neitral in view of the fact they served the public in 
Columbus, Georgia, however, in various instances in order. to 
get rid of her they contributed $5 #00 or $10.00 to defray print- 
ing expenses, vxhich she said she vrould have. 

Mrs. JENKINS at the very beginning called upon Judge LAMAR for 
advice ard would bring her problems to Judge LAMAR for assistance. 
Judge LAMAR stated that at various times Mrs. JENKINS would bring 
her pamphlets and leaflets to read, which at first v/ere anti- 
Communist. Later they began to show Mrs. JENKINS as being anti- 
Jewish, anti-Masonic and anti-Negro in her feelings. Judge LAMAR 
stated that she .did not give Mrs ._ JENKINS any assistance or have 
anything to do with her organization. . 

Judge LAI4AR stated that the National Patrick Henry Organization 
was still local in nature, although Mrs. JENKINS was striving 
to make it a national organization. 

0. D» SMia?H, fl^ttomey, Columbus Bank and Trust Company Building, 
Columbus, Georgia, advised in 19^7^ be has known Mrs. JENKINS 
about three years. He stated that he had found her to be a very 
peculiar and eccentric woman and related that she^ came to him

to fight CommuniSDi, pointing out that grotips could get atten- 
tion from Congress where individuals could not. She brought 
in various pamphlets, which he stated turned out to be anti- 
Negro, anti-Masonic, ant i- Jewish, as well aS anti-Communist ♦ 
Mr« SMITH told Mrs, JENKINS she was "Anti too many things" and 
he did not want to have anything to do with the organization. 

Mr, ■ SMITH related further that some xTeeks later she left a pro- 
posed charter in his office but he did not attempt to do any- 
thing with it and returned it to her. She stated that the organi- 
zation- has no officers and no frame vrork- and that meetings were 
scheduled occasionally but so far as he Imevr only a very f evx ■ 
people attended, SMITH stated that contrary to its name the 
National Patrick Henry Organization is hot national in scope and 
'is only local, although Mrs, JENKINS is ambitious for it. He 
stated she considered ;Mrs, JENKINS. -to be harmless and she vras 
generally considered in Golianbus to be a peculiar and eccentric 
old lady.

advised in 19^7 he had known Mrs, JENKINS over a period of seve-. 
ral years and referred to her as "a crack pot," He said on 
various occasions she had called the Police Department to report 
minor ,matt.ers, which she insisted be given prompt attention. 
She -was arbitrary in her demands and the Police Department gene- bs 
rally knew her as a very peculiar person. He stated she liked ^70 
publicity and he felt .that her efforts to organize the National 
Patrick Henry Organization was for the purpose of obtaining 
publicity. 

The Columbus, Georgia evening paper "The Coliambus Ledger" on 
Friday, September 26, 19^7* carried a small article, entitled 
"Woman Under Bond on Charge of Robbery." It said that a vroman

for forestalling the Communist coup d» etat in Greece 'in 
December 1944 " 

"EISENHOVffiR - THE JEV/S» SECRET \VEAPON: . 

"Eisenhower was for a long time thought to be a Democrat 
(i.e. a Red fellow-traveller). He is backed by the Com- 
munist Anti-Defamation League (Jewish Gestapo in America) 
and the Jewess Dorothy Schiff , granddaughter of the Com- 
munist -multi-millionaire Jacob Schiff and her Left-lving 
Nfew York Post. . . . * " 

"Eisenhower wears the 6-pointed Star of Jewry on his cap 
immediately above the American Eagle to indicate who are 

his real .-masters and also those of America . 

Eisenhower is himself believed to be Jewish* It was 
stated on page 30 of the 1915 issue of the West Point 
magazine Howitzer that he was a Swedish Jew; all his 
brothers are nicknamed "Ike" - a common nickname for 
Jews " 

"V;-H"AT WILL HAPPEN IF EISENHOWER IS THE mXT PRESIDENT? 

"If Eisenhower is the next President, the policies of the 
Truman and Roosevelt regimes of aiding and furthering the 
triumph of World Communism will be continued. It is pro- 
bable* that a Third Jewish arranged world war will break 
out in Europe in 1953 (i.e. after Eisenhower is President 
and America safely in the bag as far as the Jews are con- 
cerned) and it will be fought on the lines of Korea. In 
other words, the American Government will fight to lose on 
purpose as it is now doing in Korea " 

"Two world wars have sadly reduced Britain and France - 
another world war with America fighting to lose as in 
Korea will similarly reduce America. If America loses 
2 millions of her youth by 1955, she will be finished 
as a great nation. She will then be. ready to accept 
the only Jewish price for peace - a Jewish V/orld Dic- 
tatorship operating from Jerusalem. By Jewish, we, mean 
the Jews who run America, Russia and Israel, for the 
Jews are one United Race in dispersion."

"U.N.O. WILL MOVE TO JERUSALEM: 

"Now it is the Jewish intention to transfer ultimately U.N.O. 
to Jerusalem. The Charter of y.N..O. was drafted by the Left 
Wing Jew from Russia Leo Pasvoisky, Special Assistant to the 
U.S. Secretary of State, and its midwife at San Francisco 
was the Red traitor .Alger Hiss. Israel's Prime Minister Ben- 
Gurion said (reported in the London Je.wish Chronicle of l6th 
December 1949) "Jerusalem is riot the capital of Israel and 
world Jewry; it aspires to become the spiritual centre of 
the world as envisaged by the Prophets", and Rabbi Julius 
T. Loeb of Washington let the cat. out of the bag by coming 
out in favour of "Jerusalem as head capital of a United 
States of the World", while the South African Jewish Times 
of March 14th, 1952, said that Jerusalem was "the capital 
of the world no less than the capital of Israel". In 1922, 
Nahum Sokolow at the Carlsbad Zionist Congress said: "The 
League of Nations (now UNO) is a Jewish idea." We created 
it after a fight of twenty-five years. Jerusalem will one 
day become the capital of world peace". All these statements 
imply the transference of UNO to Jerusalem " 

"ISRAEL - THE WORLD'S ONLY "NEUTRAL": 

"In the forthcoming third Jewish arranged world blood-bath 
Israel, in effect, is the only country in the world not tied 
to one of the two giant Jewish power blocs of USA and satellites 
under the Pale Blue and Vftiite Israeli colours of UNO, and USSR 
and -satellites -under the 5-pointed Red Star = which is also 
the Jewish Seal of Solomon. i ... .Israel as the world '^ only 
"neutral" will alone escape the forthcoming blood-bath...." 

"In practice, "an international authority" means a Jewish 
authority for the Jews alone are international, being dis- 
persed everywhere in the world. And if UNO were transferred 
to Jerusalem, then Israel would have got the world supply 
of atom and hydrogen bombs from America and Russial" 

"OBJECT OP THE V/ORLD GOVERNMENT BY 1955 MOVEMENT: 

"If America were asked now .to accept a Jewish World Dictatorship 
as the only 'price for peace and to hand over all her atom and 
hydrogen bombs. Army, Navy, Congress, Banks, etc. to Israel,

Government in Europe on the lines of Korea - i.e., to de-

Government under a UNO transferred to the "neutral" soil of

"NO USE P&TENDING" 

"The state of affairs that has recently been revealed by 
events at Koje Island, Korea, brings us sharply up against 
the question of the real quality of the American Array, in 
which we, as Allies, are so vitally interested. Such a 
state of tumble -home rottenness andlaissez faire simply 
could not "happen in the British Army.....'" 

"The Koje Island affair is conclusive evidence that Nordic 
standards cannot be maintained even under "discipline", if 
the racial personnel of the Army is not sound enough; what 

cracks, indeed, is the discipline itself The present 

position of Britain»s defences is ghastly; it is all due to 
the original 1939 mistake, and the only way to correct it is 
to reverse the 1939 Jevdsh policy and throw in our lot with 
a revived Nazi Germany. Our enemies shout for. Internationalism, 
meaning Anti-Nationalism; we recommend International Race 
Alliances against the Jew and his Bolshevism."

that the last generation of white children is now being

peace, forbid the whites to mate with whites. The white 
women must cohabit with members of the dark race, the 
white men with black women. Thus, the white race will

.The following are excerpts from the above- 
mentioned publication-; 

" For the first time, America is threatened by a power- 
ful enemy both inside and outside her borders. 

" Bungling and Communist appeasing policies in Washington 
have- built the Soviet Union into a formidable and threatening 
force. Inside our borders the total of potential pawns of 
the Marxist revolution who can be fooled and used and perhaps 
thrown against the established order in a moment of hysteria, 
reaches to many millions. The Communist Party itself "is »»oust 
peanuts," to use the words of a Military Intelligence friend. 

" It is the miglity total of Zionist and false liberal -. • 
organizations and their potential following, including some 
labor unions and sections of the 25,000,000 of the racial 
minorities, which constitute the challenge to the police, 
the Governors', the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the 
thoughtful citizens of this Republic^. 

» But this threat is only part of the internal problem.. 
The more serious threat comes less from the misled "masses" 
below than from the comparatively few influential' infil- 
trators above. Certain federal 'agencies have been infiltrated 
by persons who are dangerous .either because they blindly 
take orders from friends of .the Moscow Communist Party, or 
b_e^cause they are. tr yin g to imp ose the same kind of Marxist 
slave state on the American people. 

". After 20 years of steady infiltration, together with 
a weakening of public resistance to federal encroachment s^ 
the forces of world revolution are now in position so favor- 
able that they may try to seize power next year or the next." 

"THEY TIPPED THEIR HAND" 

« The President has protected Communist Party members from 
efforts to expose and oust them-; he scorns the Federal Bureau 
of Investigation and all Senators (including McCarthy and 
McCarran) and others who try to get him to throw out the Reds. 
He dislikes J. Edgar Hoover and pays no attention to his 
warnings. He "red herrings" Hiss's -friend, Acheson,. We may

"wonder whether the security forces still constitute enou^ 
protection of the people against an overt power coup by the 
invisible Marxist machine. 

" Let's look at two specific forces organized recently 
which we now know were designed in part to take advantage 
of a v/ar emergency to clamp federal pov/er on .the people , 
in disregard of the Constitution, the guaranteed sovereignty 
of the separate .states, and the established agencies of local 
self-government . 

" If the Soviet Union bombs some of our cities or Soviet 
agents begin widespread internal sabotage, throwing our people 
into hysteria, the President probably will invoke martial law. 
He may. then permit either of the two forces- to impose its will 
on the people. 

"• 1). One of these forces is the infiltrated Military 
Government establishment. 

» Z), The other is the infiltrated Federal Civil Defense. 

Administration. 

" It was the plan of the late Secretary of Defense James 
Forrestal (at a time when his Department still included the 
National Security Resources Board) to, encourage sheriffs and 
police chiefs to hand pick and train hard hitting auxiliaries, 
secret if desired, to put down Communist uprisings, handle 
mass-evacuiationT of cities and maintain -orderv This plan 
{which I have reported previously as the Forrestal Plan) 
undoubtedly was one of the reasons why the Zionist, organi- • 
zations, through their radio propagandists, notably Walter 
V/inchell and Drew Pearson, did such a. systematic job of 
character assassination on the anti-Marxist Forrestal that 
he resigned and later (supposedly) committed suicide." 

" The Military Government units apparently have been 
staffed, in the key positions, by persons harrd-picked since 
Mrs. Anna M. Rosenberg became Assistant Secretary of Defense 
in charge of personnel. Personnel is the key to the revolution 
in this or any other country. It is one thing to oppose ^ 
just ComraunISM; it is- someMng else to oppose the CommunlSTS. 
The revolution is done by people, organized against people.

"The- Communists themselves ho' longer seem to object very 
much if we cuss Communism "so long as we do not identify 
the Communists in key .positions in the government and in 
powerful private organizations, and so long as we do not 
expose plans and activities and strategy of the Communists." 

"MRS. ROSENBERG. TO BE BOSS?" 

" Mrs. Rosenberg is in a position to be perhaps the most 
dangerous single individual in the government at this -time 
because ever since her confirmation in December, 1950, she 
has been picking the key personnel for the entire Defense 
establishment. The Military Government units are under the 
Department of Defense. You do not have to be" Commander in 
Chief of those units in order to clamp a Marxist dictatorship 
on their subjects when the time comes", if you can pick the key 
.personnel. The certainty that she "is undermining and sub- ' 
verting our defense forces is alarming. Yet Senators seem 
•paralyzed with fear regarding Mrs-, "osenbefg;; they don't 
want even to discuss her." 

" . The Mrs. Rosenberg who is the Assistant' Se.cretary of 
Defense, staffing our military forces with her ovm friends 
and fellov/ revolutionaries, staffing the Military .Government 
units with persons- suitable to her, is the same Anm Rosenberg 
vjho wrote for the official Communist organ NewJMasses. 

" That is -only a fragment -of her- record. All of her adult- 
life she has been "on the Marxist side of the world revolution. 
Born in the Marxist indoctrinated ghetto of Hungary, she worked 
with the late revolutionary Sidney Hillman for years, encoura- 
ging racial minorities (Negroes from, the Old South, Marxist 
indoctrinated Jews and other minorities from the Old World) to 
migrate into the key industrial cities and states of this 
Republic. There under the influence of Hillman, Rosenberg, 
Mrs. Roosevelt, the Communist Party, the CIO and the many 
Zionist and Communist fronts, these minorities are welded 
into a huge, seething block,' made to , hate the white man, and 
voted almost uniformly for the most Communistic measures and 
candidates. In this way Mrs. Rosenberg and her associates 
are welding a frightful povrer block of Marxist revolutionaries 
in our key industrial cities."

STATED AIMS AND OBJECTIVES 

The 90th issue of "Gothic Ripples", dated 
July ^, 1952, under the caption, "No Gothic Wave in Sight Yet", 
advocates the following: 

" We hold our ovm in these difficult times, but the 
Jew-wise public is yet only a small section of the com- 
munity among English-speaking peoples.- We think that 
the general awakening,. vAien it comes, may be rather sudden; 
and then the great danger will be that leadership may be 
snatched from the grasp of the really Jew-wise by someone 
with^ insufficient experience but plenty of self-confidence 
which niay cause him to lead his people slap into some Jewish 
trap;^ or someone who 'cannot overcome a natural veering towards 
"respectability" by taking weak measures instead of drastic 
ones. The only enemy we really ^,f ear is Respectability • By 
"Respectability" we mean disclaiming racial objection to 
Jews and having "many charming Jewish friends'!" 

R QBERT H. W ILLIa{^S in his pamphlet,- "Can 
The Police Protect Us?"*''urges^Tfr^ action be taken to 
preserve freedom r- I 

" But we must not sit down with chin in. hand and wait for 
Congress to act. Self defense is up to us. It is up to the 
people. It is time to go have a talk with the Governor, the 
mayor, the sheriff and police chief, the judge, the district 
attorney,, the editor*- " 

"' If they are not aware of the internal threat, show it 
to them. And remind them of their oath of office. They are 
obligated to protect you from tyranny above no less than 
from mobs below. . 

" We have a most effective defense' organization in the 
system of states and cities, each with its own governmental 
functions*.. These barriers can protect us against federal 
bureaus no matter how badly infiltrated, if we have vigorous 
enough and alert enough local and state leadership. The key 
is in the "if". Our organization is only as good as its 
leaders and its "membership". If its leaders are not capable

"of understanding the complex threat, or are unwilling to 
fight for us, we must replace them. 

" AboVe all, the "membership" of our organizations, the 
citizens of the city, county and state, must be alert and 
well informed. For an alert citizenry -will guarantee the 
right kind of leadership. 

" Get local patriotic leaders and organizations to work 
with you. .Get them to adopt appropriate resolutions; ask 
the editor to publish the resolutions prominently; send copies 
to Senators and Representatives, asking for a Congressional 
resolution to help, alert the people and their leaders and 
stiffen resistance^. Send a copy to your Governor and local 
officials and get each to make a public statement, denouncing 
the threat of federal power-by-emergency-and-seiziire, and^ 
giving assurance that these officials will not tolerate any such 
seizure. 

" The Marxists have not forgotten that when they tried to 
seize power in several nations of Europe between the two v/orld 
wars, they lost wherever they encountered, intelligent and 
fearless organized opposition. 

" Wherever they Idst they had to run for their lives, - 
because they were guilty of mass murder on a frightful scale*^ ' 
In America, they will win or lose the world. They dare not 
risk an overt try for power if we are organized and courageously 
and intelligently led. v/e can prevent- the xevolution, by 
sufficiently informing our people and o\jr leaders and by 
seeing that we are well led. 

" Offer the police your assistance in a citizen's auxiliary. 
Or offer your services to the local or state civil deferise 
forces. They need the right kind of citizens. Too many of 
the others have infiltrated the civil defense forces. 

" It is the privilege of citizens to organize for self- 
defense, so long as their aims are only support of law and

The San Antonio Express , a daily newspaper, on 
February 8, 1952, published an article which set forth that 
the San Antonio City Council had cancelled use of a City 
auditorium by one LaNGSTON HUGHES who is described as' a poet 
and lecturer. The article stated that the scheduled appearance 
of this individual was cancelled because the City auditorium 
manager, R. D. SKILES, had been presented with information 
indicating that ^UGHES was allegedly a member of a number of 
Communist-front organizations. The article stated that one 
of the two principal sources of objection was the American 
Heritage Protoative Committee. The article further stated 
that AUSTIN Er^C^ Chairman of the American Heritage 
Protective Committee, had informed the City Council that his 
group had obtained a list of Americans of "doubtful patriotism" 
from the House Committee on Un-Amorican Activities, which 
material listed HUGHES. ^

S'M?o?ir mP*®" sponsored since its inception by AUSTIN 
HHNtocK. Tie information set forth below concerning HANCOCK 
and the AHF-C was furnished by T-4: 

t 

oK 4. *.. AUSTIN H*.NCCCK first appeared in San Antonio 
aoout live or ten years ago, stating he was from New York or 
unicago where he had been engaged in the insurance business and 
had accumulated some money in this occuoation. HaNCOCK lived 
lor a number of years in the Menger I-otel and may still live 
there. He is now, in Informant's opinion, "senile" and "in 
his dotage." HANCOCK is I elieved to be well-intentioned but 
is extremely fanatical in his contentions and is irresponsible. 
Through the years, according to T-4, he has had attached to 
mm in his courses various promoters and racketeers. 

Informant ad>rised that to his knowledge there was no 
actual membership in the American Heritage Protective Committee 
S^SpnS^^ J"®^® ^®^® ^ number of followers and close friends of 
HiiWCOCK who supported his organization. 




,.o.v,« f^^^'^^^i?^..^?. T-4,. iMILI*«^^iiIfifegL about two

his work with the American Heritage Protective Committee. 
During the yoars the AHPC has maintained offices in the Bedell

Committee or AUSTIN F. HANCOCK. /

connection with his plan or idea of uniting conservative 
political groups which were in the main, "Anti-New Deal." 

,. .^ ^. Informant advised that AHPC has promoted a 
limitation on income tax to 25 per cent and a re-arranging of the 
Presidential Electoral College. Informant advised that HANCOCK

St. Louis, Missouri, on November 1., 195 1« The principal speaker 
at this meeting was JOSEPH^ ,B £AIIB1&BHA.IS. of Chicago,: -Illinois, 
who >was identified as ''tlie''"i<^naer of the White Circle League 
of Americao BMDHARNAIS confined his speech to' the national 
difficulties existing all ojver the country with particular em- 
phasis on 'Chicago and Cicero, Illinois. He-'^rged all whites 
to join the V/hite Circle Ll^gue of America, ^ahd he proposed 
that the v;hite's • should fight to keep down the black threat. 
BEATlHARMIS continued that most of the white people are afraid 
of Negroes vzhile in reality the Negroes are great cov;ards. 
He advocated that the white people should call the Negroes' 
bluff by the use of force, and that preferably this should be 
in the form of " a' fist in the Negroes' faces. BEAUHARNAIS 
stated that the Negro is ignorant and ugly compared' to the 
white man. BEAUHARNAIS stated' that his primary reason for 
being in St. Louis was to interest the Citizens Protective 
Association in joining with him in a national group to fight 
the Negro," He stated" that the Negroes were well organized in National 
Asspciation for Advancement of Colored People and in the Urban 
League, while zhe white people have no organization designed 
to combat the work of those two groups o 

According to SL T-1 one of the persons instrumental in the 
formation of the NaiJ,SS^^«gii^^A§*^^^4;4^^ 
was J0HN.,.M,i..^HMXl3EQM« " who had formerly been employeoin the 
cap^^ty bf Of f ice Manager for the Cm-istian Nationalist Party 
in St. Louis, f and vrho in. 1950, ran ofi the Christian Nationalist 
Party ticket . [for U. S. Senator in Missouri. According to T-1 
JOHN W, HAMILTON served as Chairman of the Citizens Protective 
Association- in 195ljand in 1952 held the position ot Editor 
of "The V/hite Sentinel", official organ of the Citizens 
Protective Association. 

On July 20, 1952 SL T-2 of known reliability advised that JOHN 
W. HAMILTON attended the Nationalist Convention which was held 
in Chicago. Illinois, July h, 5_, and 6, 1952 as a delegate from 
the Citizens Protective Association. According to SL T-2 
after attendance at the above convention, JOHN VL HAMILTON 
appeared enthusiastic about having. the Citizens Protective 
Association participate in a group "khovm as the National Assoc- 
iation for the Advancement of Vlhite People, which was in the 
process of being organized by JOSEPH' BEUHARNAIS^ in Chicago. 
According to SL T-2 it was decided at a general' meeting of the . 
Citizens Protective Association that they should join the 
National Association* for 'the Advancement of V/hite People,,

that he was dTsappbinted in what had beSf*ac^^SpT^^^S^**^ the 
Chicago ^ Na ti onay^s t^^^^^^ and was also disappointed in 
ffie'TfacF"*that^ had been taken following the 

Convention:'^ HAMILTON indicated that there had been a lot of 
talking 5 "but ^that many things had been left in a status of 
indecision, and in his opinion, BEAUHASnAIS was not a real 
leader. "HAl'IILTON commented that ?!f^®^3??lJ^lns Protective 
Assoc iitlori, would join the i^eitlojn^jm^mf^^ - 

AovajiSementof WhiJt^ for the personal benefit 

of-tm&£P«^^Mm¥pt^S that the Citizens Protective

Protective Association held regular monthly meetings at 35^9 ' 
Arsenal Street, St. Louis, and devoted itself to organizing 
support in its anti-Negro program* According to T-2 some 
of thV major programs of the organization x-ere aimed at 
preventing Negroes from moving into white neighborhoods; 
preventing Negroes friom taking over white schools; arid 
to prevent Negroes and candidates lending support to the 
Negroes, from winning in the. 1952 electiono

"As noted in your Semiannual Report, there are a 
number of Communist Party front organizations and 
similar groups active in your territory in which / 

your informant coverage is considered to be in- ' 
adequate. In order to be fully advised of the 
activities of such groups you should, of course, 
have security, informants active within them. 
Agents assigned to the investigation of such or- 
ganizations-should concentrate on the development 
of informant coverage within the organization and 
you should also give increased emphasis to'your s'" 
panel of confidential sources program," It is felt 
that this program is an excellent method of obtain- 
ing not only good witnesses for use in prosecuting 
these front groups but also for obtaining good long- ' 
range security informants of real value..'" 

In view of the above, each agent to whom one of the organ- 
izations listed hereon is assigned is instructed to prepare 
/ imtned l at ely a memorandum for hi s case file , with a copy for

In addition, each agont is to clearly set out what his immed- 1=2 
late plans are to inc.rease live informant coverage "of the ^^^ 
organization, with particular emphasis on securing informants
